    Default Florida man sues grocery chain because his rose had thorns

    a rose...with thorns...who would have expected THAT!

    maybe he got an infection because he didn't wash his hands enough?

    Lake Mary man sues Winn-Dixie over rose thorn prick

    By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel


    SANFORD A 41-year-old Lake Mary man is suing Winn-Dixie Stores Inc., saying it and a grower should pay him $15,000 because when he bought roses at a Lake Mary Winn-Dixie three months ago, a thorn pricked his hand.

    The suit, filed Monday, accuses Winn-Dixie and Passion Growers LLC, a Miami flower importer, of negligence.

    Charles B. Imwalle, a fishing guide, asks for compensatory and special damages, alleging that he suffered pain, disfigurement, medical bills and lost wages. He would not say Wednesday why he is asking for so much money. He referred questions to his attorney, Paul M. Thompson of Altamonte Springs, but Thompson would not comment.

    According to the suit, the defendants should have stripped thorns from the flowers, wrapped the stems more carefully and used an anti-bacterial solution in its display buckets.


    Sam Ferrara, founder of Passion Growers, said Imwalle got an infection and blamed the roses, but Ferrara insisted the flowers, which come from Colombia, are sterilized. "We've been doing this 20 years," Ferrara said. "We've never, never had anything like this where anyone has gotten an infection by a thorn prick."

    His insurer, he said, had rejected Imwalle's claim.

    A spokesman for Winn-Dixie did not comment.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Some say love, it is a river

    That drowns the tender reed

    Some say love, it is a razor

    That leaves your soul to bleed

    Some say love, it is an asshole

    Who sues Winn Dixie

    Because the rose

    Pricked his finger


    It's the heart, afraid of breaking

    That never learns to dance

    It's the dream, afraid of waking

    That never takes the chance

    It's the jerk

    Who sues Winn Dixie

    Because he didn't know

    Roses have thorns


    When the night has been too lonely

    And the road has been too long

    And you think that love is only

    for the lucky and the strong

    Just remember in the winter

    Far beneath the bitter snow

    Lies the fool

    Who goes shopping

    At Winn Dixie

    And buys a rose







    Don't read this.

    Perhaps if we had laws against thorns on roses in grocery stores, we'd all be better off, much like with these laws: http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/fami...0k-t52208.html

    One of their few well written songs in my opinion.

    And to get back to the original post, that guy is an idiot and I wish the courts would start charging people for time wasting lawsuits such as that.
